Are you looking for hosting on which to run Windows? If so, you are probably thinking about a Windows VPS. But working with OpenStack might be a better alternative. And why not also try a Linux VPS? Let us guide you through the various options available.
Take a look at our OpenStack solutions
Combell has a large variety of hosting options on offer - from predefined web hosting packages to managed hosting solutions tailored to your needs and OpenStack Cloud. The form of hosting that is the most suitable for you depends on your specific requirements. Our Hosting Selection Guide will clarify the situation for you and set you on your way.
You will see that we recommend a VPS (Virtual Private Server) for developers who have more technical knowledge and a greater need for freedom. A Virtual Private Server gives you a great deal of autonomy and control: you manage your server in the way that suits you. You can configure your mailboxes, databases, and so on, to suit your own requirements. And, at the same time, you can be assured of 100% performance, because you have your own dedicated resources – your own CPU, RAM, etc. that are not shared with anyone else. This means your website or project will never slow down because another Combell customer is using a lot of CPU at peak times.
And the great thing about this is that, despite the extensive autonomy you have, you do not have to concern yourself that much with the technical aspects of maintaining your server. On the one hand, this is because you administer important settings via the user-friendly Plesk control panel. And, on the other hand, because the really technical management tasks, such as security updates and so on, are carried out by Combell’s experts.
Obviously, a Virtual Private Server needs to have an operating system for it to work: Linux or Windows. For transitioning to a VPS environment, anyone working in a Windows environment is likely to firstly consider a Windows OS. But that is not always ideal – a Linux environment has many advantages as a VPS operating system.
Let us summarise the advantages and disadvantages of a typical Linux or Windows VPS:
Various factors make Linux the best VPS environment in which to host a website or project. In this context, the compatibility with PHP, Ruby, Python and MySQL, which are among the most commonly used web languages, is a decisive factor. Most hosting companies, including Combell, have phased out their Windows VPS offering. As a provider, we can give users better performance and more satisfaction in a Linux environment compared to a more expensive Windows VPS. All of the benefits of Combell’s Linux VPS Hosting are available for you to read here.

Do you still need a Windows OS for your website or application? No problem: our OpenStack range is the perfect alternative for still being able to set up a Windows environment with more freedom than on a Windows VPS.
This is a highly scalable platform on which you can launch instant servers and where you have complete control over your entire environment. With just a few clicks, you can add servers and load balancers to your network however you want. The big advantage is that you only pay for what you use – down to the hour!
And do you know what the best thing is about it? You do not have to figure out in advance what you need by way of computing resources such as processing power, storage and so on. If your requirements change, all you have to do is adjust them – OpenStack is, after all, perfectly scalable!
You can even choose to have your infrastructure upscale automatically when the load on your servers gets too high. If you suddenly get more visitors than expected, additional servers will be deployed automatically. Then, once the peak is passed, the servers switch themselves off and everything reverts to how it was before.
If you would like to run your Windows OS in Combell’s OpenStack cloud hosting, you will benefit from the following unique benefits:
In addition to these, you naturally get all the benefits provided with all Combell hosting packages, such as 99.999% uptime, high SLA guarantees, 24/7 support provided by experts in your own language, reliable connections to the Internet backbones, etc.
